DescriptionTheodore Wirth is a varied, sprawling park on the western border of Minneapolis. With the downtown skyline in view the whole time, you can run, walk or bike on paved bike & pedestrian paths, tackle several 1-4 mile sections of technical single track on bike or foot, and loop back and forth for an endless mix of variety - starting at the Wirth Lake beach house off Glenwood allows to easily create multiple 2-5 mile loops, with fluid/good breaks back at your car if needed. Overall, the park is a fantastic way to get off-road less than 10 minutes drive from downtown Minneapolis.
